Swimming is a subtopic of Adventure. See Adventure's other subtopics and posts.
It’s pretty funny to now think of this, but as recently as 2002, I really could not swim. In the water, I’d be like a fish out of the water, flailing my body around and splashing a lot. I still may be a mediocre swimmer, but at least swimming 2.4 miles is no longer a problem for me — at least with a wetsuit.
